“Seedo's hermetically sealed systems are controlled and managed by artificial intelligence software, which analyzes the plant's development and takes actions to optimize growing parameters based on its performance,” said Seedo CEO Zohar Levy. “Simply set a growth plan for your particular plant species and sit back and let it grow.”
To meet the growing demand of their automatic grow system, Seedo recently opened up a customer service center and logistics warehouse in the Netherlands that now serves as its European distribution hub.
The system pairs with a smartphone app that both tracks the progress of the plants as they grow and monitors the conditions in which they’re developing to optimize growth. Should anything go wrong, a notification will automatically be sent to the user’s phone alerting them of the issue.
How the Technology Works
Levy also noted that Seedo recently filed for a new patent to cover their unique AI technology and data analytic algorithms that increases yield, improves the plant feeding process, provides real-time recovery algorithms, and detects any issues that may arise.
The company encourages the public to “think of Seedo as the first driverless car for hydroponic growing.”
At the end of March 2019, Seedo also announced a partnership with Kibbutz Dan in northern Israel to develop fully automated commercial cannabis farms within shipping containers.
On top of applying their technology towards containers for commercial scale at Kibbutz Dan in Israel, Seedo is positioning themselves to keep up their momentum of global growth with strategic partnerships, including with retail innovation firm OutForm. This firm has strong ties with large retailers like Home Depot, Best Buy, and Bed Bath & Beyond — and Seedo has aspirations to potentially introduce their hydroponic grow systems across the U.S. through these retail giants.
On March 19, Seedo announced plans to build the world’s first fully automated, commercial-scale, pesticide-free, containerized cannabis farm as part of a new partnership with Kibbutz Dan, an agriculture-based community in Israel, which was recently approved the export of medical marijuana.
In the future, and with their UN contract, the company is hoping that this technology will be used to grow food on a massive scale in areas of the world most affected by climate change and where the soil is poor in nutrients.
A seed is placed in a nutrient-rich container (that will last for the plant’s growing cycle) and then placed inside Seedo who will take care of the rest.
How it works
The device can grow up to five plants at once, and completely takes over the role of expert gardener, managing climate control, lighting and nutrient levels and thus is able to produce a significantly higher yield than more modest, traditional operations.
Seedo has an app that lets you watch your weed grow — in high definition no less. It also sends notifications, has a controller and the option to unlock the device from your smartphone.
Seedo then uses its own algorithm to implement the ideal water, fertilizer, and temperature levels for whatever you are growings in order to maximize its yield.
Seedo’s AI-powered technology will also enable communities to grow high yields of both native and non-native produce with less labour, energy, and water than ever before and in less than ideal conditions.
This article by Grow Weed Easy gives you an in-depth look at how CO2 works.
CO2 isn’t a magic formula that you can just increase and automatically see a bigger yield and faster growth. As with everything, it takes expertise and knowledge of how to use it. You’ll need to consider positioning, the right amount of light and timing.
CO2 for Home Growing
It’s a well-known fact in the agricultural world that high concentrations of CO2 can improve the growth and yield of a crop. Greenhouse farmers have been doing it for years. How does it work? In high-light situations, supplying more CO2 allows your plants to use more of that light, which results in increased photosynthesis and therefore faster growth and bigger yields.
In a natural ‘outside’ atmosphere CO2 moves at around 400 ppm. However, it’s been shown that the herb plant can benefit from up to 3 times that, between 1200 – 1500 ppm.
What springs to mind when you think of CO2? Global Warming is probably pretty high on the list. One of the main causes of global warming and the effect it’s having on our earth is the rise of CO2 concentrations in the atmosphere.
